Tech Tips

Course distribution lists are available for instructors to email their entire class. The new lists will automatically be created for each "active" course and maintained to include only enrolled students. They will be updated once per day. The list will use the student Maricopa Gmail addresses. Please advise your students to check their Gmail regularly or forward it to their preferred email address so they do not miss important college communications. Please see the attached document for additional details. Click here to find out more information about student email.

CANVAS CORNER

Did You Know…  Copies/imports/exports do not happen instantaneously, especially at the beginning of a semester.  It can take up to 2 hours for course copies to complete.  Please be patient and let the copy complete.  Copying the course again will duplicate the content.  Review any alerts reported after the copy and take corrective action.  Most likely the errors are related to broken links in the course.
From the Courses Global Menu, access the new course you want to import another Canvas course into.

  1. Click Settings from the Course Menu on the left-hand side of your screen.
  2. Click Import Content into this Course on the right-hand side of your screen.
  3. Select Copy a Canvas Course from the drop-down Content Type menu.
  4. Locate the Course from the drop-down list. If the course has been completed, be sure to check the box to included completed courses.
  5. Select All Content and click Import.
